Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings deliver at both ends of the pitch as Aston Villa become only the second side to claim a clean sheet at home in 2020/21

Centre-backs Ezri Konsa (£4.5m) and Tyrone Mings (£5.0m) both delivered double-figure hauls for Aston Villa in Gameweek 2 of Fantasy Premier League.

Konsa scored the decisive goal in Monday's 1-0 victory over Sheffield United, with Mings supplying the assist.

Villa maintained their run of strong defensive displays when playing at their own stadium.

Dean Smith's side recorded seven clean sheets at home last season, the same number as Liverpool and Manchester United.

Villa have also become only the second team this season to produce a shutout at home across the opening 18 such matches of 2020/21.

Fox in the box

Elsewhere in defence, Timothy Castagne (£5.5m) continued his excellent start for Leicester City, supplying two assists in their 4-2 home win over Burnley.

The Foxes' right-back is the only player to feature in the Kings of the Gameweek line-up in each of the first two rounds of matches.

He takes his place in a Gameweek 2 team that totalled 171 points in a 3-4-3 formation.
